Punxsutawney Phil wasn't the only one who saw his shadow last month. Just 12 days after the groundhog ogled his umbra on Feb. 2, the European Space Agency's comet-hunting space probe, Rosetta, captured a photo of its shadow on CometShow More Summary
A European Space Agency (ESA) mission aimed at testing new technologies for understanding the universe has left Britain for final testing before being launched into space. The LISA Pathfinder mission's propulsion and science modulesShow More Summary
When we see photos of space, the data doesn't always come from one place. This photo of the Small Magellanic Cloud comes from the European Space Agency's Herschel's Spectral and Photometric Imaging Receiver (SPIRE), Photodetector Array Camera and Spectrometer (PACS), and NASA's Spitzer's Multiband Imaging Photometer (MIPS).

This brand new image from the OSIRIS scientific imaging camera of European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft reveals two fascinating things. First, we have an incredibly detailed view of the surface of Comet 67P. Second, look at that fuzzy, dark patch at the bottom of the photo—it's the shadow of the spacecraft itself! Read more...
An international team of researchers has demonstrated a way to assess the quality of water on Earth from space by using satellite technology that can visualize pollution levels otherwise invisible to the human eye through 'Superhero vision'.
Another security-focused development in the European mobile space: Finnish mobile startup Jolla, which develops the Sailfish mobile OS and its own brand mobile hardware, has just announced it will be partnering to create a “security hardened” version of the platform, called Sailfish Secure.

From ReelNASA: NASA Astronaut Mike Fincke and ESA European Space Agency Astronaut Luca Parmitano reflect on the inspiration that actor Leonard Nimoy’s character Mr. Spock in the television series Star Trek had on scientists, engineers, space explorers and fans around the globe. Show More Summary
NASA astronaut Colonel Mike Fincke and ESA European Space Agency astronaut Luca Parmitano bid a touching farewell to actor Leonard Nimoy, each noting the profound effect that his famous Star Trek character Mr. Spock had on the lives of scientists, engineers and astronauts around the world. And as we at NASA along with our international […]
Randall Munroe, author of the popular math and science webcomic xkcd, posted a graph about the European Space Agency’s mission to land a probe on a comet last November. The former NASA roboticist pointed out that the most incredible thing about the Rosetta mission wasn’t its unprecedented proximity to a comet, or the decade it took to get there. Show More Summary
Inspired by the European Space Agency's landing of the Philae lander on Comet 67P in November of 2014, London-based Studio Swine created these high-heeled Meterorite shoes as part of a project for Microsoft. Read on, even if wearing these monstrous shoes is probably the last thing you would ever do!
The European Southern Observatory released an incredible set of images today that give the best-ever view of the deep universe. It’s a stunning new peek at one region of space—the Hubble Deep Field South (HDF-S)—that reveals many previously invisible galaxies, along with new information about how they move and how far away they are.

Well, it appears that Invader has invaded space once again, but this time it’s even closer to a literal interpretation. With the French street artist have portrayed his unmistakable tiled mosaics at the European Astronaut Centre in… The post Invader Invades the International Space Station appeared first on Highsnobiety.
The Paris Metro is one of the world's great underground railways and not the sort of place you'd expect to find cutting edge satellite technology at work. But for the last year and a half a cooling system developed by the European Space Agency (ESA) for its satellites has been making Trains on Metro Line One more comfortable. Show More Summary
In a space-age game of chicken, the European Space Agency's (ESA) Rosetta probe made its closest approach to comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko last weekend. The spacecraft, which has ceased orbiting the comet due to 67P's increased activity...Show More Summary
The European Space Agency's Sentinel-1A was launched just last year, and it's already proving its importance as the first satellite actually optimized to target areas of seismic activity. The proof is in the pudding. In this case, the pudding was the August 2014 San Francisco area earthquake. Read more...
The Rosetta spacecraft recently made its closest encounter with Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, and now the European Space Agency has released some sweet pics it took during the flyby.The latest image focuses on the surface of the comet's...Show More Summary
Back in November, the European Space Agency made history by landing a probe on Comet 67P, marking the first time that any spacecraft has successfully landed on the surface of a comet. The mission has taken more than ten years, with Philae having landed on the surface, and Rosetta running tests from orbit. Show More Summary
The amateur and professional astronomy communities alike are busy scratching their heads today; headlines from the ESA (European Space Agency) claim that scientists are baffled. Now, such a claim is common among the mainstream media, and we can usually assume they mean, simply, that they don’t know...
The ferry reentered the atmosphere and burned up safely, and it was all captured in time-lapse video
This time-lapse video from the European Space Agency shows show an unmanned cargo ship departing the International Space Station and burning up safely when it reaches Earth's atmosphere. The video was created using images taken by NASA astronaut Terry Virts.
